I went away for a few days so I shut my Mini off in case of power surges. I just restarted it and am getting on the screen a number of message boxes asking for keychain password. I do not use keychain and have never set it up with a password. Even though there is a cancel on each box they just keep coming up whenI hit cancel. The message boxes are:
Cloudd wants to use the "Local Items" keychain
Networkserviceproxy wants to us the "login" keychain
Safari wants to use the "Local Items" keychain
cdpd wantd to use the "Local Items" keychain
Protectedcloudkeysyncing wants to use the "Local items" keychain.

I have never seen these before and can not get them to go away. They are smack in the middle of the screen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

macOS by default sets up a login keychain to store your passwords and the password would be the same password you use to login to the account. Did you try to enter that password?

Yes. And it keeps telling me it is the wrong password. I just logged on 5 minutes ago with that password yet it tells me that it is the wrong password.
